Groundwater Recharge

  • Onsite wastewater treatment systems are the original “green infrastructure” technology. Onsite systems recharge local aquifers, ensuring that water taken from the ground is eventually returned there.

  • In arid regions such as the American West, onsite systems are one of the few bulwarks against the alarming rate of depletion of underground aquifers.

  • NOWRA estimates that as many as 8.5 billion gallons of water are returned daily to underground aquifers through the use of onsite/decentralized systems.
